Cute baby picture alert!

4 months old already, seriously? Both girls are rolling over, laughing out loud and eating cereal out of a spoon! We moved up into size 2 diapers, and I almost had a crying spell. It's going by too fast!

Piper loves to be on her belly. She also discovered that she can blow raspberries, so she does it all of the time. At the moment (and I'm sure this will change) she seems to be my more independent one.

Layla is my talker. She yells out loud, which makes her laugh at herself too. She loves to hold onto you while you're holding her. She might be a momma's girl :)

They both love to watch tv, especially Sesame Street. They laugh when Elmo comes on :) So, now I'm just trying to come up with some way to keep them this size forever... *sigh*

Wednesday, February 16, 2011 for charity!..

My Baby Clothes Boutique has partnered with the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance to help aid in their fund raising efforts. Tuberous Sclerosis is a genetic disorder that is either inherited or spontaneously mutated. What this means to you is that TSC affects nearly 50,000 people in the United States and more than one million people worldwide. At least two children born each day will have TSC. Current estimates place TSC-affected births at one in 6,000 live births. The affects of this condition are varying in every case, which is why the medical professionals are researching to gain more understanding. Symptoms and areas affected are the skin, brain, nervous system, kidneys, heart, and tumor growth. Research has linked many cases of cerebral palsy, epilepsy, severe mental retardation, behavior problems, and unexplained tumor growth to Tuberous Sclerosis.

So how can you help? By shopping!! How easy is that? My Baby Clothes Boutique will donate 12% of all orders for customers who enter the code "GIVE2TSA" in the promo box during checkout.

Enter the code “GIVE2TSA” during checkout at My Baby Clothes Boutique to donate 12% of the total purchase to TSA. Now is the best time to buy those little tutus you have wanted but were waiting to buy. Next time you watch her twirl in her new tutu, think about the child you helped with your purchase.

..csn stores review & giveaway..

If you're a fan of one-stop shopping, then you would love CSN Stores. Started in 2002 as just one online shop, CSN Stores is now comprised of more than 200 different shopping sites. Most sites are named for their primary product offerings or the styles they provide. These include:,,,, and

Here is what CSN Stores has to say about some of their products:

"Beyond stellar customer service, our 200+ sites at CSN Stores offer the largest selection of items for most home and office goods. And these items are priced right to be very competitive with other sites, providing our customers with strong savings, too. This combination of benefits is rare among online retailers and is what sets us apart.

Leading brands on CSN Stores' sites include: La-Z-Boy, Herman Miller, iittala, Kartell, LG, Rachael Ray, Sanyo, Diaper Dude and many, many others. The variety of products is also staggering, with some one million available.

CSN's product categories cover everything from cookware, ultra modern furniture, bunk bed-office combinations and fitness equipment to gaming chairs, grills, greenhouses and much more.

If it's a piece of furniture or an appliance that you need for your home or office, you should check for it at CSN Stores first, as there's a good chance we carry it and at a competitive price."

Recently, they sent me a Set of 2 Feather Bed Pillows from Sleep Line to review.

I can openly admit that I am somewhat of a pillow snob. I love feather pillows. They're the only thing I sleep on at home, and I carry them with me when I'm staying overnight in a hotel.. I'm also picky about the kinds of feather pillows I sleep on. Don't give me some little thin, flimsy thing. I need a big, fat feather pillow!

I've been sleeping on these for a couple of weeks now and they've been great. One thing that I'm really happy about is that they don't go flat. They hold their "poofiness" very well - tell me that's not the perfect description when talking about pillows! I do wish the cover was a little thicker to keep some of the feathers from poking through, but that's pretty much to be expected. Otherwise, they are really comfortable, and they don't get really hot at night. That's a big deal, since I sleep next to a heater of a husband.

CSN Stores had graciously given me a $40 gift certificate to send to one lucky winner. You can buy yourself some pillows like mine, or one of their thousands of other items in one of their 200+ shops. Here's how you enter..
